I am 28 years old and have been waiting years to get up enough courage to report a teacher for sexually abusing me for years. When I finally got up enough courage to report her, I found out that the statute of limitations was up and she will never have to pay for the things that she did to me. I decided to call her and make a video to let the public know what kind of person is around their children. Her name is Andrea Cardosa and works with your children at Alhambra High School in Alhambra, Ca. Please help spread the word that this person is out there "helping" YOUR children!

Felony sexual assault charges were filed Monday against Andrea Michelle Cardosa, a former vice principal at Alhambra High School. She has been charged with 16 counts of aggravated sexual assault and lewd acts on a child under the age of 14.

This comes after the release of a YouTube video where Cardosa is confronted over the phone by a young woman who says she was sexually abused by her years ago as one of her students at a Riverside middle school.

 The video was viewed on YouTube over a million times in one week, and since its release, a second victim has come forward. Edward Imwinkelried, a professor at the UC Davis School of Law, joins the show to discuss the case.
